SFTIO DT Reveal #4

Hey yall! How are ya?! I hope you are enjoying a beautiful day! I wanted to hop online right quick and blog about my 4th DT layout for Scrapbooking From The Inside Out. As you know, this month's kit is themed around 'discovery.' All of us over at SFTIO are scrapping about things we've discovered in life or things that we hope to discover. For this page, I scrapped about something that I am sure almost all of us has discovered....life is not easy! It is downright miserable at times! But you know what I realized after I finished this layout....it's those bad days that get us from one happy time to the next. So I guess you gotta mix the good with the bad, right?!

For this page, I decided to use an 'exploding' technique. I have created a tutorial on this and it will debut sometime this month on SFTIO in the 'Exclusive Content' section. So if you are interested in that, keep an eye out on the SFTIO site. This page was fairly simple and fast to put together. I used the Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner for the majority of the page and Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots for the flower.Here is my page...."It's Not Easy."
Love these flowers in the kit! I stacked this flower on top of some chipboard that was in the kit. I cut the leaves myself using my Cricut. I also did a bit of stamping using a stamp in the kit. And aren't those fabric brads adorable?! Love 'em!
I also am in love with the two sets of alphas in this kit! They are so versatile!

My journaling reads: Life...it's so not easy! I've discovered that it's best not to get your hopes up...there's almost always something that's gonna get in your way, but you gotta get over it and keep going! Cry, yell, get it all out, and then move on!

I hope you have enjoyed this page! Be sure to hop on over to the gallery at SFTIO and check out my fellow DT's pages using this kit! They are all so awesome!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day and take care of yourselves! I'll be back tomorrow with the final SFTIO reveal for this month!!! Happy Scrappin'!

Pin It!

Can't wait for that tutorial! I used something similar that you made with the edges curled back about a year ago. You gave explicit instructions and even I was able to do it! LOL!
